Chef Alejandro Vega - Costa Sur Resurt and SpaWhile we were in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, we had a delicious lunch on the Sunset Terrace at Costa Sur Resort & Spa, located in the Zona Hotelera Sur (South Hotel Zone) section of the city, and asked Chef Alejandro Vega if he would share his delicious recipe for Seafood Ceviche Vallarta Style, which he graciously does. As they say in Mexico, Buon Provecho!


Ceviche is a very popular dish of Puerto Vallarta, which is a famous beach resort city, located in the state of Jalisco, in the western part of Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean. Although the base ingredients for ceviche are fish or seafood marinated in lemon juice, every chef infuses their own personal mark on their recipes. The Seafood Ceviche Vallarta Style at Costa Sur Resort & Spa features a combination of octopus, shrimp, baby scallops, and fish, with the addition of onions, tomatoes, cilantro, cucumber, and avocado for a clean, fresh, and delicious taste.

Having experienced the restaurant on a trip to Puerto Vallarta in late April 2014, we can say that the only thing missing from the recipe is the view of the attractive private lagoon beach where we went snorkeling, kayaking, and took a paddle board lesson for our own personal "triathlon" of water activities. Photos of the beach will have to suffice with the ceviche recipe until you can visit.

Buen Provecho from Chef Alejandro Vega.
